LOOK issues product recall

LOOK has announced an extensive product recall that encompasses various models in the range which feature the Aerostem Clamp.

The brand said: “High-quality standards, safety and customer satisfaction have always been our prime concern. LOOK Cycle has identified a possible risk of fracture of the AerostemClamp under highly corrosive environments and we have therefore decided to proceed to a voluntary recall.”

The clamps have been commercialised on the 695 Light, the 695 Aerolight from 2014 onward, the 795 Light and the 795 Aerolight from 2015 onwards.

The brand has stated that although the stem clamps do comply with European safety standards, several isolated cases of cracking due to corrosion in the clamp’s fibre has lead to the decision to recall the range and replace the offending part with an updated model.
